    I met a chap from Cape Verde in the Woolshed one night and he was a massive Liverpool fan, place seems to be about the same sort of arrangement as the Canaries but he was great crack and absolutely loved Ireland and Liverpool, ever since then I've kept an eye on their results, was delighted they dug out a win in that one against Ethiopia.

    https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/202...lows-for-full-time-whistle-early-as-mali-win/


    The Africa Cup of Nations match between Tunisia and Mali ended in huge controversy after the referee blew for full-time on two occasions before the 90th minute, with the game not restarting following the latter whistle.

    Mali led 1-0 thanks to a Ibrahima Kone penalty and saved a Tunisian spot-kick in the closing minutes as they battled for an opening victory.

    Referee Janny Sikazwe blew his whistle for full-time with 85 minutes on the clock but resumed the game after protests by the Tunisian players and staff.

    A red card was then awarded to Mali's El Bilal Toure, which required a VAR check, while both penalties were also following VAR reviews.

    There were further stoppages in the half, including a cooling break, so several minutes of extra-time were expected and the fourth official had his board in hand with 20 seconds of normal time remaining.

    Sikazwe, however, once again signalled the end of the game before the clock reached 90 minutes and this time ignored the Tunisian anger.

    Security officials had to escort the official from the pitch in bizarre scenes at the end of the game in Cameroon.

    Mali were undergoing their post-match press conference when AFCON ordered the match be restarted.

    The players re-entered the pitch but Tunisia did not show and the referee once again declared the match to be over on an embarrassing day for the competition.

    Jesus what an absolute farce. No attempt to even cover up the corruption here.

    “ the time is just more of a guideline, you see some refs blow on 45 some on 90. The ref did 85 and 89. 2 brave decisions which in my opinion is spot on” - any ref in the media

    Mane & Keita both start against each other in Senegal vs Guinea

    Kick off at 1pm. should be a decent game. They’ve both looked like some of the better sides so far in this tournament
